embracing autism shelly helbert leadership looks like podcast

Meet Shelly

Shelly Helbert is a mom to three boys. Shelly and her husband, Cody, noticed that Jackson’s behavior was much different than his twin brother’s. He wasn’t speaking much, would throw massive tantrums anytime there was change and became fixated with certain toys or behaviors. After hearing from multiple sources that her son might have autism, she turned to Facebook in search of support and solutions.

This episode is a personal journey of vulnerability and acceptance as the Helbert Family embraces autism and a new normal.
